Mr S. B. Desai (F) (Department of the Environment)
As a member of the Institution, I would like to thank Professor Regan for his paper and, particularly, for his presentation. I believe that Professor Regan is one of the principal contributors to the background research and thinking behind the modern reinforced concrete shear design rules in the UK. My first impression on reading his paper was that he was not in favour of any further research in this field. It felt as if he invented a ball-game and now wishes to take the ball away and says: ‘There will be no game any more!’. I am glad that this is not the case!
